Default Re: Control 24 completely dead - fuse blown?

Incidentally we have now put a APC Smart UPS between the mains and the C|24.

Our Control 24 blew after a mains outage

Default Re: Control 24 completely dead - fuse blown?

In case someone comes across the same switching power supply failure that I experienced recently after a main AC problem, here's a possible solution.
I removed the blown T5A fuse soldered on the circuit board and from there ran two wires to a standard fuse holder on the back of the PSU rear pannel, which implied drilling through two sheets of metal near the on-off switch. When I turned the board back on, the new fuse blew instantly.
Then I found a hint about checking the PSU FET transistor, which turned out to be kinda loosely bolted onto its radiator, meaning it had probably heated up badly and making it more likely to die when stressed. I replaced it (8€) and the board came back to life ! The specs at RadioSpare are SPW20N60S5, Canal-N, 20A, 600V, A-247.
And I strongly suggest to working Control 24 owners to open the PSU pannel and crank the **** out of all the bolts holding heating componants to their radiators...
